Recent James Bond developer Bizarre Creations is being shut down by Activision after disappointing sales for their last couple video games including Blood Stone, The Club and Blur. Activision purchased Bizarre Creations only 3 years ago. Bizarre Creations is best known for their critically acclaimed and widely popular racing series Project Gotham Racing as well as Geometry Wars, both of which were developed prior to the sale.
According to a source at Giant Bomb, Bizarre Creations will undergo a “90-day consultation period, statutory redundancy” which is required by UK law prior to shutting down a business. Bizarre Creations has almost 200 staffers.
Blood Stone ends with something of a cliffhanger that was designed to setup a sequel. Regardless of what Activision decides to do, that sequel won’t be coming from Bizarre Creations.
